So where’s the party, IndieCan Radio? It’s Episode 300. Shouldn’t there be cake and a self- congratulatory speech? Nah, it’s about the music; there wouldn’t be an IndieCan if there weren’t 100’s of thousands of fans that tune in. And people wouldn’t be loyal to our lowly hour a week if the music wasn’t remarkable.

So like the frame on the Mona Lisa that no one remembers, we’re just glad to be along for the ride. Framing greatness is its own reward. So #300 is more of the same best music you’ve never heard: Hollerin’ Pines, Crystalyne, The Love Machine, Paper Maps, D.O.A. The Zolas (pictued here courtesy of Wendy L. Rombough) , Nephelium, Donalyn, GRAY, The Town Heroes, Meredith Shaw, The Archives, The Rabid Hole and The Mighty Rhino.

Sometimes I hear artists say, “I want to play more.” Well the UK artist known as Passenger says, “Then, play more.” He busks. He sells 100s of CDs a week from busking. He promotes his show in many towns that he visits by busking. Dignity is what we bring to an activity—not something inherent in an activity. Also, chance favors the busy. It’s hard to get lucky while we complain in our basement. This isn’t preaching or bitching. It’s just a suggestion if you are an artist or love an artist to listen to one of two interviews on # 297 with Passenger who was in Toronto playing a sold-out Echo Beach in support of Ed Sheeran.

You’ll also hear from a Toronto band who aren’t afraid of work. Dearly Beloved pictured here from behind the stage at the Bar Fly (part of POP Montreal 2011), have a noteworthy work ethic, too. They arrived at a St. Laurent bar that was unspectacularly quiet, in part because of the free outdoor Arcade Fire that had drawn over 100,000 just blocks away. They set up, plugged in, turned it up and played their hearts out. The bar filled up by the time they were three songs into their set and 170 or so of the Arcade Fire fans on St. Laurent that night became Dearly Beloved followers. We hear from Rob and Niva this week about Dearly Beloved’s Hawk vs. Pigeon recordings

Also on # 297, Gabrielle Papillion, Hannah Georgas, Ed Sheeran, The North Lakes, Jenn Grant, Colin James and Steven MacDougall. Rip it or stream it.

Every year Hillside Music Festival sells out long before some of us ever get to see the line up of great Canadian and international acts. IndieCan is like being there without the mosquitoes and late night drum circles.

So come back stage with us while we interview Rival Boys (picture courtesy of Wendy L. Rombough photography), The Crooked Brothers and Deep Dark Woods.

True North Records—is that as Canadiana as maple syrup or hockey on a frozen pond? No, not unless you’re a music fan. Then, the story of Canada can’t be told without this seminal chapter in our history. I get the feeling from talking to Bernie Finkelstein that there weren’t many times while history was being made that he had a sense that history was being made. The True North story seemed like an anxious pattern of “What if” and “How are we going to pull this off?” moments that added up to something remarkable, like building the Trans-Canada highway ten meters at a time. Only in retrospect can one look back at over 5,000 km of highway and say, “Hell yes, that was significant. That defines us as a nation.” Audacity, timing and talent created the story of True North records. The book is a good read. This week, meet the author of the book and the architect who built a label without permits or degrees—just love. Included this week, The Golden Dogs, Rough Trade, 54-40, Bruce Cockburn, Hunter Valentine, Catherine MacLellan, Murray McLauchlan and Blackie and The Rodeo Kings. Tell me how anyone can explain Canadian music while omitting this line up? (picture courtesy of IndieCan's Wendy L. Rombough)

Jeremy Panda’s record Son Ame Feliz got the attention of the new Degrassi show as the song “So We Dance” was featured. That’s pretty cool. Jeremy is not what you call the iconic front man. Behind the scenes he helps others look good in feel good in every sense of the word T-shirt. Peace and Cotton Merch Co  is where you will find Jeremy during the day. When he’s not helping other artists look good, he may be helping a friend sound good.

Hear Episode 88 with The Dunes.
